Hello everyone.

Well the following is a real css-bug of Opera9. (Tested with Opera9.63/9.26, i guess it's fixed in v10 but i didn't try it.)

The Problem

When you use the css >content:''; border:1px solid #123;< on an input, then the browser inserts some empty elements and you cannot hide it anymore. If it sounds a little bit strange (why would anyone use content on form-elements?) - Some people are doing kinda extreme css-resets etc., etc.

In fact it's getting even more crazy between the versions given above. Just take look at the screenshots provided.


In my opinion jQuery should hide() whatever i want, no matter what my customers css looks like. I know this may cause some overhead in the jQuery source... Just tell me what you think about it.

Seems to work properly in FF 3.5, IE8, and Opera 10, so I'd consider this to be an Opera9 bug.

Closing as this is fixed in Opera 10+. You could probably write an Opera 9.x specific patch if you really need it.
